February Product of the Month: Carbon Monoxide Detector.
If your heating and cooling system contains a gas element, it is imperative to have a functioning carbon monoxide detector. The majority of homes in our area only use electric heat. However, others do have gas components. This article will describe why a carbon monoxide detector is important. As well as, what O’Brien’s offer is for this product of the month for February.
What is a Carbon Monoxide Detector?
A carbon monoxide detector like the name entails detects carbon monoxide in your home. Since carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless it’s important to have one. Carbon monoxide leaking into a home can make people very sick and can even be fatal. It is heavier than the air, so this detector can be placed in an outlet close to the floor. Therefore, it can be detected before it is inhaled. It beeps extremely loud; I can confirm to that when CO is in your air!
Who Needs One?
If you have any gas element in your home, you need a carbon monoxide detector. Whether it be a gas stove, gas fireplace, or a gas furnace. There are many options that you can purchase. If young children or older adults reside in the home; more sensitive CO detectors are available.
What to Know?
While having your annual HVAC maintenance, it’s a great time to have yours checked. An annual check is all it’ll need unless it runs on batteries. In this case, you may want to check it twice a year.
